  1. I did Mark, checked the displays. I am looking forward to learning about this. It worked perfectly to copy and paste the cabinets from the work you did into my plan--for now. I want to up my knowledge and skills. Thanks again.
  2. Mark, thank you. I have been attempting this on my own and it did not work. I then opened your plan and copied it and pasted in place into my remodel plan for the client and it is not working for me. I don't expect you to attempt to teach me this and will need to look for videos and other sources on Chief to learn. I will copy and paste the cabinet though into my remodel plan. Thank you so much. Sharon
  3. Here is the basic plan for that wall of cabinets. Thank you. Chief Forum Cabinets.plan
  4. My X13 interiors is up to date-- Build: 23.4.0 1230SX and my Mac is up to date with the latest software. I have had this happen so often over the years, but have just ignored it. I have time today to attempt to solve it, but had no luck researching on Chief Architect web site or here in Chief Talk. I experience this when I do what I call a doll house view (perspective overview camera) and you see the cabinetry from above. The crown is rendered correctly in elevations and in the room camera view. Here is what I double check every time: All of the cabinets are snapped to the wall. There are no cabinets overlapping each other on the actual plan and the crown molding is my default molding that I use in the majority of my projects. The finished floor to the top is 93" on all of the cabinets. Solutions I have tried: I have made the cabinets smaller in width and then returned them to the correct width. I have used the arrow key to move them a few inches out from the wall and then back in. I have exited the camera view and then opened a new one and it is still the same issue. Is this a bug? Is there a solution? Thank you so much. Seems I have been very active lately and everyone has been so helpful with some of the issues I have had.
  5. Thank you so much for all of these tips! So appreciated
  6. Larry, I like the idea of trying a polyline solid.
  7. Mark, Where are you getting your image from?? I read about this feature, but it did not mention importing an image taken with a camera or my iPhone. Is that what you are doing.
  8. I have clients that want 3D images of a view of their backyard through their dining room and living room windows. They are removing a 2 story sun room. I have searched Chief as I remember an article about customizing and creating backdrops. What I would like to know and can’t find is the size these images should be importing them as backdrops. I have tried before and some of my attempts have been very distorted -i.e. the trees and shrubs are giant size and you just see a huge trunk out the window instead of a wooded backyard. I need the backdrop to provide a realistic view. Thank you for any advice with this.
  9. Mark, thank you so much, this is perfect. Never thought of using a door. I so appreciate this. Sharpn
  10. I am hoping that by chance, someone might know if this glass cabinet door or similar might be found in one of the catalogs. BTW, I have searched and searched to see if I could find something. Thank you
  11. I guess I do not understand how it has worked until X13 and how they would change the things needed to show materials???? I really am not ready to buy a new iMac!
  12. It is only with materials, it is not with items like fixtures, furniture etc. That is why I do not know what is going on.
  13. Has anyone else experienced the Library Preview panel being so dark, it is hard to see the example of a material. I have changed it from a panel, to a cube, to a sphere and it is all the same. If there is a control to change t his I have not been able to find it. Appreciate any help. Sharon Olsen
  14. Eric, thank you so much for helping me. I found the issue with my mouse setting after digging around some more! Thank you!
